Lumen Prints are photograms created by placing plants directly on photographic paper and placing in the sun to develop. The colors in the resulting print depend on the plant, humidity, ambient temperature, duration and intensity of the sunlight as well as the type of paper used. You will have an opportunity to try several different papers and learn how to make the prints permanent once they have been exposed. Some botanical materials will be supplied by the instructor, but students are encouraged to bring plants, flowers, negatives/transparecies and any other materials they wish to experiment with along to use in the class. Found foliage and leaves would make wonderful fall-themed artwork.
This is an all ages workshop.
